Bittersweet moment for a man who got a “bucket list” wish granted by one of his faves, Dolly Parton.
LeGrand Gold has been battling cancer for two years and told local media he got news the cancer had spread outside of his liver. So he decided it was time to write down 10 bucket list wishes on a napkin, and one of them was to meet Dolly Parton. His wife got video and showed how his face lit up when he got to talk with Parton on the phone and got a special serenade. “I always want to make people happy with my music and with the things I do and the things I say and I’m just happy to know that I’ve touched your life in some way,” Parton told Gold. “You’ve been a huge help especially these past two years,” he responded. Parton then sang “I Will Always Love You.”
